In this 19th-century regal residence, the lobby is sleek white stone and plate glass, embodying the hotel's philosophy of "preserving the past—shaping the future." Suites are in modern or imperial style, and many of them are spectacular, two-story showpieces, the best done in gilded-yellow Biedermeier or Empire style. All have fully-equipped kitchenettes with a complimentary stock of champagne, wine, beer, and soft drinks; espresso machines; laptops with free Internet;
and two bathrooms, some with gigantic whirlpool baths and saunas. Startling purple and white is the color scheme in Restaurant Coburg, run by one of Austria's best chefs, Silvio Nickol, and posessing one of the best wine cellars in Europe.
